The packaging is quite nice here. A unique design for the front. The back of the card shows what accessories are included.

The contents of the packaging are shown below. There is a small baggie of parts hidden behind the Mega Construx Halo graphic on the bubble of the card.
You get quite a nice variety of things here.
• Two special colored and named figure stands
• Gravity Hammer
• “Brute” Rifle (This hasn’t been officially named as such. I’m just using that term to differentiate between it and the Assault Rifle.)
• Assault Rifle
• Energy Sword
• x2 Spike Grenades

In the baggie (shown above) you get:
• “Brute” Pistol (Again, this isn’t official, just a temporary name)
• Pistol
• Attachable scope for Assault Rifle
• x2 Frag grenades

The scope slides onto the AR. A nice fit. Do be careful not to lose, as this is a very tiny piece!

The Brute Pistol has some printing on the ammo drum. A series of mustard color ovals can be seen. It should be noted that this drum can spin.

The insert sheet shows how the figures are put together. Thankfully, that’s already done for you though. On the back side again, the accessories included.

Let’s take a look at those figures now!

Master Chief, now in his Halo Infinite Armor looks quite striking. Emblazoned on the left chest plate is “117”, Master Chief’s Spartan number. There is a very slight silver wash in places. Nice touch!

Here are the orthogonal views of Chief:

And now for the Brute Warrior.
This is a very good figure. LOTS of detail in the armor. A nice mix of dark grey and dark red to denote the Banished look. The loin cloth is slightly bendable, so it shouldn’t easily break off. Again, another nice bit of attention to detail there.

Orthogonal views of the Brute Warrior.
Something to make note here. The shoulder armor is the same as that of the Arbiter. That is NOT to say however, that this Brute got the armor from the Arbiter. Likely rather that Mega is reusing an armor piece. Regardless of why, I very much like it.
The Brute looks sufficiently bulky here.

And finally the pair together!
How will these two come to fight in Halo Infinite?
Well, it’s not long now, before we find out.

Summary: A fun little 2-pack. It features Chief in his new armor. Also what is likely an army building Brute. LOTS of accessories to choose from to make your own adventure.

Overall Rating: I give this set 10 out of 10 medals.
Why did I give it a 10 out of 10?

• Two great figures and a plethora of accessories.
• two color coded and named figure stands.

Here’s my opinion on the break down of the value of this set. (In US dollars)
• Each figure with a weapon and the stand is worth $4 for a total of $8.
• The additional four weapons I put at $2 total.
• The four grenades (2-spike and 2-frag) I put at a total of $1.
TOTAL: $11 (before tax and in U.S. dollars) 

Given that the set costs $10 US before tax, I find this set slightly above value. Then when you add in the custom printed card front graphics, the value is even better!

Do I recommend it?  ABSOLUTELY! New Master Chief and a very well done Banished Brute. More than enough accessories and two special figure stands. What’s not to love!
